State Requires Vaccine Verification for School Workers    

Just one week after Marin County Office of Education signaled that vaccine verification would be required for Marin school staff, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued today a health order that would require the same for schools in all California counties, both public and private K-12 schools.  

Current CDPH K-12 guidance strongly recommends vaccination for all eligible individuals, thereby reducing COVID-19 rates throughout the community, including in schools, and creating a wrap-around safety layer for unvaccinated students. The State’s Health Order, consistent with this recommendation, requires verification of vaccination status among eligible K-12 school workers, and establishes routine testing of unvaccinated workers to minimize the risk that they could transmit while on K-12 school campuses, where a majority of students are not vaccinated and younger students are not yet eligible for vaccines. 

The new order does not apply to child care or higher education. For more information, read the Governor’s news release or review the state “Vaccine Verification for Workers in Schools” health order.  

 

Health Care Facilities Implement New State-Ordered Visitation Policy 

Do you plan to visit a loved on in a local hospital, skilled nursing facility or long-term care facility? Know before you go! Today, health care facilities across the state began implementing a health order that restricts visitation, and in many cases requires vaccination status verification or a negative COVID-19 test.  

Health care facilities are high-risk settings where COVID-19 outbreaks can have severe consequences for vulnerable populations including hospitalization, severe illness, and death. By taking measures monitor visitors to acute care facilities, including verifying vaccination status, these facilities are protecting both patients and workers.  

Plan ahead: Each facility is implementing this new policy differently from others, and visitation among a facility’s departments or services may differ (e.g., Emergency Department, Inpatient services, Outpatient services). Confirm facility’s visitation policy ahead of time. Be prepared to be screened upon entry and show proof of vaccination OR proof of negative COVID-19 test in the past 72 hours. You will be required to wear a mask at all times when indoors. Some facilities may limit the number of visitors in a patient’s room at one time and children under the age of 12 may not be permitted to visit. In rare cases, visitation may not be allowed.
